    I think there is some confusion or misunderstanding what a "Package description" is, or for that matter any similar type of file which is or is similar to a manifest compared to invoking a pop up or other similar warning to the User...

    An invoked <warning> is triggered by code and is not simply something found in a description somewhere.

    Even if you wanted your warning to be invoked by "higher level" code which might be injected by the the openSUSE package instead of upstream, it's still code and can't likely be invoked only by a description file (Well, it might be technically possible if you don't care about spaghetti code).

    Thank you for telling about "spec". I didn't know about that one. Inside that, it looks like what I need. Next time I'm online, I should work on it.

    I don't think a pre-update warning is worth the effort right now, since patching is underway anyway. What I want to edit is the description shown to users who click a button to "Review" an update. Right now, it's misleadingly wrong.

    And, by the way, I don't know of anyone who approves of spaghetti code (unless there's no alternative possible) and I have no desire to introduce any.

    Thanks.

    I'm trying to submit what's done but I'm apparently trying it wrong. I edited the chromium.spec file within the Build service (not on my machine) and it officially "succeeded" for two architectures (i586 and x86_64) for openSuse 13.2. I edited a copy of chromium.changes locally on my machine. Apparently, building the spec file produced four files (chromium-desktop-gnome-51.0.2704.106-882.1.i586.rpm and *-kde-* (instead of *-gnome-*) and, for both, *.ix86_64.* instead of *.i586.*). I tried Submit Package via the Web interface but that got Error 404. I installed osc and tried osc add and listed the short (as above) and full URLs for the four files but the short ones were not recognized and the long ones got the message that obs-service-download_url is needed and I guess I don't have that. I put chromium.changes on my machine but osc vc doesn't see it. I understand I should put everything into one package (that word "package" is written surrounded with angle brackets and not quote marks) before submitting but I don't see an instruction on how, so I thought I'd submit chromium.changes separately, but I don't know if that's an acceptable procedure. I don't see a suggestion to email the files as attachments, so maybe that's not acceptable. How should I proceed? Thank you.

    Hi
    Do you have a link to the package on OBS?

    Yes.

    Waiting may be needed. I edited chromium.changes and maybe that's causing the package to be "building", even though chromium.spec was successfully built ("succeeded") a few days ago and all I edited today looks like a text file (chromium.changes), but maybe it's rebuilding everything anyway. The other day, it took roughly two hours on Suse's/openSuse's servers, so I assume that's what it should take this time. It probably started by 9:15p EDT. Due to success the other day, I expect success this time, too.

    One detail change: The chromium.changes file with my edit is now online, not just on my machine or flash drive, so that's progress. So now chromium.spec and chromium.changes should be online in one place.

    I'm not sure which link to provide, but the following list should include one link that's useful:

    * https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...chromium?rev=2 (with Overview tab preselected)

    * https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...inson/chromium (this gets me an Error 404 page ("the page you are looking for does not exist") even though I'm logged in) (I got this URL via the "Submit package" link on https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...chromium?rev=2 (same URL as first URL above))

    * http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.2/ (if this is all dated 28 Jun including drill-down contents even after the latest building is done then it probably does not include chromium.changes revised tonight, Jun. 30/Jul. 1 per time zone)

    Thank you very much for helping. Please let me know what I should do.

    Hi
    Not sure why it doesn't have all the repos, don't think it branched properly... But if it submits (as in creates a submit request aka SR) hopefully all is ok...

    How do I make the "Submit package" link on https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...inson/chromium work? All it has ever given me is an Error 404 page. Following the instruction on the Error 404 page to search for the submit request dialog gets me a dead-end Error 403 page.

    Instead, I'm downloading the built stuff to my laptop, but it looks like that will take 9-12 hours or so, with me standing (not sitting) in front of my laptop. Then I'll have to upload it into OBS, and I assume that means another 9-12 hours or so, while still standing. If I have to go to the bathroom, I have to stop downloading or uploading and start again at the beginning of whatever file (there are only 3) I was in the middle of. This is not doable.

    I think if I can command OBS to transfer the files within its own server intranet, especially if I can walk away and it'll still do the transfer once I've started it, it'll actually get done.

    Suggestions to make the link work? Or, if not that link, some other way to make OBS move or process the files without downloading to my laptop and uploading back again?

    Hi
    If you have osc installed;
    Code:
    cd <your local obs dir>/home:NickLevinson/chromium
    osc sr -m "Clarification/correction to chromium-desktop-gnome and chromium-desktop-kde"
    That's because the service file is running (428MB), but you seem to have created two branches hence the 404...?

    You also need to fix the changes file, add returns at 67 characters in the changes file;
    Code:
    - Clarification/correction to chromium-desktop-gnome and chromium-desktop-kde software descriptions due to passwords preservation reported by Chromium developer
    
    
    
    Change to
    
    - Clarification/correction to chromium-desktop-gnome and
      chromium-desktop-kde software descriptions due to passwords
      preservation reported by Chromium developer.

    I edited *.changes and now everything is building again, but it can build without me around, so that's not so bad. The 3 files total roughly 560MB and, as far as I can see, I have only one branch. I have osc but apparently everything has to be local (I tried the URL to no avail), and requiring local storage means 9-12 hours or so to download it to be local and I imagine osc is no faster for the uploading, so that will be about 18-24 hours while I stand at this counter. Isn't there some way I can do the process within the OBS or openSuse servers?

    Hi
    There is an osc option to not let the service run so it won't download --noservice.
